Bacon Wrapped Asparagus is a sweet and savory side dish. Ready in 30 minutes and perfect for dinner tonight. Enjoy asparagus season! My friend Brooks’ nickname for The Hardworking Husband is Bacon. As you may have guessed he gets this nickname because he LOVES bacon. He would eat bacon every day if I cooked it. We always have bacon in our house. And I often buy 15 lbs of bacon at a time and freeze it. When I came across a recipe for Bacon Wrapped Asparagus, I knew I had to try it. I made it for a dinner party.
Inspired by a local Thai restaurant, this Ham Fried Rice is delicious! I buy a ham several times a year. I don’t buy it often, but when I do, I bake it and we eat a dinner with slices of ham. Then I chop up all the leftovers and divide it into freezer bags, and it makes for simple dinners later on. One of those delicious dinners is Ham Fried Rice. After eating fried rice at a local restaurant not too long ago, I found that I really liked the way their ham fried rice was prepared. It had
Knock-Off Cafe Rio Sweet Pork Salad is a delicious Mexican salad with sweet & slightly spicy pulled pork. The Hardworking Husband and I love going to Cafe Rio. My favorite to get there is the Sweet Pork Salad. I love that their ingredients are fresh and made in front of me. But my budget just does not allow me to eat there as much as I would like. So I decided I would figure out how to make my own salad. There are several things that go into this salad that have to be made as well, but for

All opinions are mine alone. #Switch2Sourdough #CollectiveBias As a high school student, I participated in a month-long exchange program with a student from Germany. She stayed with my family for a month one year, and I went and stayed with her family the next year. It was such a great experience, and one that really opened my eyes to how differently people live from country to country. One of my favorite parts of living in Germany for that short time was the food. Every morning Herta, my host
Croissant Sausage Squares is a great recipe for a brunch or a party. Super simple to make and wonderful to share. For Thanksgiving this year, The Hardworking Husband and I are staying home and no one is coming over. It is wonderful. While we love our families, we need a break. By the time Thanksgiving gets here, I will have been to Denver 6 times, Texas once, and Yellowstone 6 times. We also have worked hard this year. We are looking forward to a low key day of watching football. I will not be cooking a big meal. Neither of
Egg Soufflé is a great dish for a brunch or breakfast. It has a croissant crust with egg, cheese and ham filling. I have been going to Denver fairly often this year. We have gone to visit our friends Mile High Grandma (who now has a new nickname Auntie M) and Colorado BFF. I also have been going to teach classes about Young Living Essential Oils. While there I love to visit Panera. We don’t have a Panera, yet. (One is being built.) So I take advantage of being close to one all I can. They have these egg soufflés.

Looking to start the year off right? Or just looking for better dinners to serve your family? Check out these 40 great healthy dinner recipes. Just about a year ago, I posted 25 Healthy Dinners because I was vowing to eat healthier in 2014. And I did… well some of the time! Some of those recipes have become family favorites and great fall back recipes when I need a healthy dinner to feed my family. A couple months ago, I started having some health problems that are helped immensely by a healthy low-fat diet. So I figured I needed some more
Dutch Oven Pork Roast is an easy yet delicious dinner. This roast tastes amazing and smells amazing while cooking. We have had a great holiday break. I did a bunch of brain storming. I have some great ideas for a new year. I felt like I was starting to drag. But I am now refreshed and ready to bring you some great recipes, gardening posts, and a new series. I will explain more in a post later this month. First, I have two recipes for my menu for this month. Both these recipes go right along with the new series
Scalloped Ham, Potatoes, and Carrots is an easy hearty meal. The recipe is a vintage recipe from The Good Housekeeping Cookbook from 1949. I am back to making a Vintage Recipe. I have been wanting to get back this series for a while but things have been so hectic around here. Little Thing has kept me so busy. She is nearly walking and keeping me on my toes. I haven’t been able to get everything done that I would like to. But she is far more important that all those things. This recipe comes from the Good Housekeeping Cookbook
